Fraley, who has lived on the the quiet, short stretch of rural roadway for four decades, said speeding motorists have become “a tremendous problem” over the years
The 35 MPH speed limit is something Fraley said is “way too high” for the road.
“People come down the road and they just floor it,” she said. “They think it’s just a raceway from corner to corner, for some reason.”
That has led to numerous vehicles veering off the road into ditches, knocking over mailboxes, damaging guard rails and plowing through residents’ front yards, Fraley said.
“Something needs to be done out here,” she said.
It was too early to tell if drugs, alcohol or excessive speed were believed to be factors in the crash, according to police.
A crash in Monroe initially trapped two people inside.
The incident occurred around 2:45 p.m. in the 800 block of North Garver Road.
Police and fire departments are on the scene and helicopter transport is not available due to adverse weather conditions.
One person was removed from the vehicle is being taken by ambulance to Atrium Medical Center in Middletown, according to emergency scanner traffic.
Emergency crews are working to extricate the second person from the vehicle.
